Link of the Week: Brooklyn Book Festival

BBFhomepagelogo-2014Make sure to mark your calendars, because the Brooklyn Book Festival is coming to town this Sunday!

Many serious readers, if asked, would tell you that there are few ways to better spend a day than to be surrounded by books in a cozy environment, enveloped in a world they can hold in their hands. There is also the kind of reader who forays into the realm of nature with just a book, no library or comfy couch needed.

Books unite us, despite our genre, reading device, and environmental preferences. And what better way is there to celebrate the book than by checking out the Brooklyn Book Festival? As the largest free literary event in New York City, the Festival promises events for every kind of reader and book professional, and even the causal passerby. From author readings and Q&A’s, trivia night and scavenger hunts, workshops, talks from top professionals and panel discussions, with music, art and food thrown in, attendees have a wide range of events to choose from. Click here to see the full list of events.
